I always thought Clapton was overrated. Love Cream asa group but Clapton's other efforts never floated my boat.

Yep; though I am always babbling on about CREAM, for me it is entirely due to Bruce/Baker. I really would have been okay with substituting a diff lead player. I haven't bought a single thing his post Bl Faith...

right there with you on the cream and blind faith...and with my love of traffic/winwood blind faith is one of my all time favs...

like others have noted the ability is there but at times the feeling is just missing...a very important part of the musical equation...

thinking of clapton, I turned on one of the songs that I do love his work on: While My Guitar Gently Weeps...

Hey V--I think we have connected on this before, but with you ALL the way re Stevie. Saw him a few yrs back and he was GREAT! One of the real superstars in my mind. Sure, some of his stuff in the 80s/90s lags a bit (for me), BUT 65-75, he was amazing!

me too, other than Cream & Blind Faith, I've considered Clapton a better than average blues player, but just that.

The highlight of Layla was the keyboard and Duane Allman

The best leads? Garcia-Hendrix-Stevie Ray Vaughn
because of the heart and soul they put into it
